Sprint has confirmed that the HTC One E8 will be arriving for its customers and the handset is available now on the third largest carrier in the US. The E8 is in some ways a watered down version of the HTC One M8 flagship, featuring plenty of flagship specs but getting a plastic body instead of the M8's ultra-premium metal unibody.I could personally debate that the E8 looks better in plastic than the M8, but at the very least unless you have some kind of specific inclination to metal, both the One M8 and the One E8 look mostly the same. Who said plastic can?t look good and feel premium anyway? Aside from that, the E8 gets the same 5-inch 1080p panel and the same 2.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor with 2GB of RAM as the One M8. HTC has changed the opinion dividing 4 megapixel UltraPixel rear camera on the M8 in favour of a 13 megapixel lens on the One E8, but we imagine some people would prefer the latter anyway. Sprint is offering the HTC One E8 now for $99 on a two year contract, $20.84/month for 2 years with Sprint's Easy Pay option, or 400 of your American dollars off contract.
